Homemade almond milk is a lot easier than people may think it is to make. It takes less than 10 minutes and the taste is amaZING! Compare fresh almond milk to store bought packaged almond milk and you may not want to go back to store bought. Also, you can add spices such as cinnamon
, nutmeg, or cardamom.
My friend Kristin Whitcoe wrote "The Almond Milk Book" and the recipes are awesome. Natural Zing hasn't had it in stock for a while, but if you are lucky you can still find the book around. Kristin gave me a PDF as a gift, so I have it forever. Thank you Kristin.
Here is the recipe that I used in my cafe for years. Superfoods Cafe and Market is likely are still making it this way.
• 3 cups water
1. (optional) Soak the almonds in water overnight or for at least 6 hours. Drain the water from the almonds and discard water.
2. Blend the 3 cups of water, almonds, dates and vanilla until well blended in a high speed blender.
3. Strain the blended mixture through the nut milk bag
to remove the pulp.
